Department of Management - Student Life

Student Life

As a W. P. Carey student, your classroom experience is just one part of your preparation for a successful career. We also offer a variety of outstanding extracurricular programs and activities to provide you with practical, real-world experiences that complement your classroom studies and prepare you to become one of tomorrow’s business leaders.

Among our extracurricular programs and activities are:

Honors Management Experience

Students who are also enrolled in the Barrett Honors College can enhance their management studies through a series of contracts in their management courses and the completion of a baccalaureate thesis or creative project. Recent projects have covered a wide range of subjects including the philosophical underpinnings of labor law in Spain, China and the United States, an assessment of the motives for baseball ownership, a study of the impact of the e-book on publishing, an examination of the impact of social networks on employee retention and a business plan to grow a "garage band" into economic viability. Interested students may learn more about the Honors Management experience by contacting the Honors Advisor, Dr. James H. Moore by e-mail or at 480-965-3230.

Management Student Clubs and Organizations

Management Students Association

The Management Students Association (MSA) works to expand student awareness of career options in retail and operations management, human resources, entrepreneurship and consulting. We bring speakers to campus to share their experiences and help the members explore management career options. MSA is affiliated with the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) and works with local SHRM chapters to provide internship and other career opportunities. Interested students should contact Dr. James H. Moore by e-mail or at 480-965-3230.

Business Law Club

The mission of the Business Law Club is to provide information and networking opportunities to students interested exploring careers in business law.  To achieve this goal, we invite attorneys to discuss their experiences in law school and their careers, as well as non-lawyers who discuss their interaction with attorneys in everyday business situations. We also host events that teach students about the law school application process and law school selection, and we provide LSAT practice sessions. Interested students should contact Dr. Lora Koretz by e-mail or at 480-965-2620.
